Attah Sisters Helping Hand Foundation (ASHH Foundation), a non-governmental organization in Bauchi State, has trained 20 rural women on pasta making in Dambam Local Government Area of the state.
Mrs. Comfort Attah, the executive director of the Foundation, while supervising the beneficiaries at the training centre in Dambam said that the objective of the empowerment initiative was to equip the beneficiaries with life-saving skills.
She said that the project supported Women for Women international to enhance rural women’s economic status in their respective communities.
Attah implored the beneficiaries to utilise the skill they acquired and also cascade the skills to other vulnerable members of the community.
She informed the beneficiaries that the pasta making training would soon be followed by distribution of the machines in a grand ceremony.
Attah also said that the initiative was just one out of the other skills programs being implemented in the state by ASHH Foundation, with funding from Women for Women International.
She commended the community leaders and the beneficiaries for their support and enthusiasm demonstrated during the training.
“The brand of pasta you were trained on is different from the regular pasta you see around. This brand of pasta comes with it’s spicing that will be ready-to-eat after a short time cooking,” she said.
